Happy New Year’s greetings!  Brandy and I spent the better part of the last few days planning out our design inspiration by month for 2010.  And you are going to love it!  We are trying to get way ahead of the game so we can provide a consistent and compelling pattern and color story offering for you throughout the year.

I don’t want to provide any spoilers, but above is our pattern filter – everything we offer has to hit a few key points before it makes the list.

Your first real glimpse into 2010’s inspirations will be later today, when we will provide you with January’s color story and first pattern.  And when I say later today it could be early tomorrow, because our best work seems to be from 11pm to 3am!

Not to leave you empty handed, here are two random tidbits for you:

Again, thanks for reading our newborn blog, and we look forward to a wonderful 2010 together!

Loving all things handmade and vintage, I have quite the collection of crochet trimmed pillow cases already, most of which my mother made.  Every time I see them it brings a little calm and a big smile to my daily routine.

Which brings me to a wonderful etsy find:


I love the vintage feel yet modern appeal with the colorful fabrics and bright trim details.  Check it out people!

Here is her blog, as well as a sample of the wonderful photography on her site.
